1 How sweet is the love of my Savior!
'Tis boundless and deep as the sea;
And best of it all, it is daily
Growing sweeter and sweeter to me.

Sweeter and sweeter to me,
Dearer and dearer each day;
Oh, wonderful love of my Savior,
Growing dearer each step of my way!

2 I know He is ever beside me!
Eternity only will prove
The height and the depth of His mercy,
And the breadth of His infinite love. [Chorus]

3 Wherever He leads I will follow,
Thro' sorrow, or shadow, or sun;
And tho' I be tried in the furnace,
I can say, "Lord, Thy will be it done." [Chorus]

4 Some day face to face I shall see Him,
And oh, what a joy it will be
To know that His love, now so precious,
Will forever grow sweeter to me! [Chorus]
